Collection Development Policy for the University Library.
Bell, Louis; And Others
This policy statement for a university library covers goals and objectives of collection development, the sharing of resources, and the responsibilities of both teaching faculty and librarians in the collection development process, as well as general library policies and guidelines and selection policies in the various subject areas and university units. General policies deal with approval plans, duplicate copies, gifts and exchange, intellectual freedom, microforms, out-of-print and rare books, replacements, serials, and weeding. A general discussion of selection policies, which includes collecting levels, materials collected, and materials excluded, precedes descriptions of policies in specific subject areas; i.e., education, educational resources, humanities and fine arts, management, natural sciences and mathematics, and social and behavioral sciences. Each of these areas is divided into a number of subheadings. Also included are selection policies for Small College and University College, and a subject index. (RAA)
